Yes it is another flea market but this time it's in Block-T creative arts space which is an interesting space in and of itself and seemingly the artists studios will be open to the public.
We will meet outside Block-T Art centre gallery space in Smithfield at 2pm. It's at the end nearest the river inside Smithfield Square.
If this is your first time we'll be the people with sketchbooks in our hands. If you're late just draw away whatever takes your fancy and we will meet again at the entrance to Block-T at 4pm and go for coffee together and show each other what we did, or even what we bought, might be handy for a christmas present even!

Having both just recently won accolades at the Dublin Living Awards 2011, Block T and Dublin Flea Market are teaming up again for another Christmas Cracker of a Market in Smithfield this December 10th & 11th.
This year is going to be even bigger and better as they move into.... BLOCK B... a vacant space directly opposite Block T on Smithfield Square. It will be Dublin’s biggest Christmas Market with 120 stalls spread over Block T and Block B.
Block T will be showcasing the best of Dublin’s Affordable Art with 30 local artists selling their work in addition to the 15 resident artists who have permanent studios in the building.
The studios will be open to the public for the weekend and the art will be accessible to even the tightest of wallets.
Block B will be made up of 90 ‘Flea Market’ stalls with an added Christmas kick. So all the usual bric-a-brac, clothes, furniture and trinkets you would find at the Flea with an injection of Christmas cheer in the form of crafts, creative thinking and off-the beaten-track present buying opportunities. As always the main focus is on small, local, Irish businesses and individuals who are doing great things in Dublin. This will be the most interesting andenjoyable place to shop for Christmas without going near the highstreet.
